Default Front blunt 270 help!

Can anyone give me some advice on how to frontblunt consistently? I tend to drift off the opposite side of entry a lot. Then sometimes I press too hard and come off early on the same side. Also how does one know when to set the the 270 out? Is it just "feel"? Or can you spot the end of the rail somehow? Thanks!

It's a pretty inconsistent trick for me too. I find it helps to over rotate the 90....it helps keep your body rotating towards the way you want to spin out. I feel that if you're riding over the opposite side of the rail, you're not getting the board a full 90 before getting onto it. Trying to over rotate the 90 will help you make sure you get the 90 on every time.

Also, once you get on, concentrate on looking under your back shoulder. It'll give you a reference point to spin out and keep your head turning in the direction you want to spin. If I don't focus on looking under my back shoulder I find I look at the rail or under my feet, which means I'm not turning my head in the direction I want to spin out. Hope that helps.
